April 4, 2010. A day that will haunt Washington Redskins fans for years to come.
The Washington Post headline read: "Donovan McNabb traded to Redskins." My mind read: Here we go again, trading draft picks away for a player past his prime.
On the one-year anniversary of this debacle of a move, where do the Redskins stand? They are robbed of a possible starter (second-round draft pick traded in 2010) as well as a fourth-round draft pick this year.
It is speculated that McNabb, barring typical Washington D.C. sports bizarreness, will never suit up in the burgundy and gold again. So what's the team to do? Trade him? Release him?
Unfortunately for the 'Skins, options are quite limited. A poor performance last season, and the melodrama that is the Redskins organization, have sent McNabb's stock plummeting and most likely robbed the team of any chance of rectifying the losses levied upon them.
However, not all hope is lost in this dark hour. With the lockout in full swing and plenty of time to plan a strategy concerning McNabb, Shanahan and Co. may just pull of an offseason miracle.
